A Thought on BurMyanmar

Okay, obviously the real issues involved are the catastrophic tropical cylone, the related death toll, and the military junta's opposition to foreign aid. But as I follow news coverage in my office, I can't help but notice that every TV and internet outlet continues to refer to Myanmar as "Burma."

Seriously, they changed the name in 1989. Catch up, folks!
